Hey guys I need your input again. I want to get a lightweight flywheel and a lighter clutch and pressure plate, whats your opinion on brand names etc etc. I know their expensive, would like to keep cost down if possible. Also what about the lighter weight driveshafts any input on those as well?

if you're working with a small block chevy and you have to run a stock clutch, then the corvette flywheel is the way to go. if you can use a mini-clutch, i like the ram assault weapon with an automatic flexplate. they're extremely durable and relatively lightweight. with the assault weapon, i'd also recommend an aftermarket, thicker flexplate since you won't have a torque converter to keep the flexplate stiff. i've broken a stock one before.

Sorry for not giving enough info. It is a SB chevy with a 3 speed tranny. Only limitation on the clutch is it has to be on the crankshaft. I want the lightest but reasonably priced stuff, cant afford to get the best right now.
